food prepping is the key

In order to be successful at a healthy lifestyle and especially healthy eating, you need to be prepared.

There is nothing worse than getting home to your family after work and to have nothing for them to eat.
This is when take out or boxed foods happens.

So, that being said, you need a day to get organized and to cook for the entire family for the whole week, or at least a few days in advance.


 
 
Pick a day of the week where you can spend at least a few hours cooking.

Make sure that you go grocery shopping the day before and be mindful of the fact that you need to buy all fresh ingredients!

Pick recipes that you like and that you know your family will like as well and get cooking!!!

Make sure to:

-Set aside one day every week when you cook
-Set aside 2 to 3 hours to cook
-Portion all the meals that you want to take to go for lunch in small containers
-Place the rest in refrigerator friendly Tupperwares and  VOILA you are ready for the week ahead!

This way you will never:

-Have nothing to eat which is the number one excuse for ordering take out
-Have to worry about what you are eating, you cooked it!
-Spend time after work cooking for the family, just reheat and serve!

HAPPY MEAL PLANNING!
